FDA, You’re Doing a Heckuva Job

August 15th, 2008 | by Tom Harper |

It shouldn’t be surprising any more when this kind of shit happens. We found out three years ago that FEMA is just a useless empty shell. And the Environmental Protection Agency now exists for the sole purpose of protecting corporations from those #$%&!# environmentalists.

And now we find out the true purpose of the Food and Drug Administration: coddling the pharmaceutical industry and promising them there won’t be any mean old competition for their products.

Wyeth Pharmaceutical instructed their prostitutes at the FDA to ban the use of Estriol. Estriol is chemically identical to human estrogen. The FDA even admitted (while they were banning it) that it has no side effects. Wyeth wants the “free market” to be safe for their own similar product. Unlike Estriol, Wyeth’s product is derived from animal hormones. And unlike Estriol, Wyeth’s product has some serious health risks, including blood clots and cancer.

Like the old saying goes, what’s good for Wyeth is good for America.

I got this information from the Libertarian organization, Downsize DC. Here’s the link.

Doesn’t this make you feel all warm and fuzzy, knowing that the FDA is watching out for you? At this rate we’ll probably find out the Homeland Security Department is protecting Osama bin Laden.

When the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) was approved three years ago — just barely, and only after several hours of threats and arm-twisting from Tom DeLay (”who???”) — there were all kinds of rumors going around. The pharmaceutical industry was going to start banning (through their government stooges) most vitamin and herbal supplements so they wouldn’t have any competition. This would be done gradually of course. The peons might get a little restless if Vitamin C and Goldenseal disappeared off the shelves overnight. So we’ll just do it slooowly.

This action by the FDA gives a lot more credibility to those rumors.

    Jan heard about this last week from one of her doctors, who was outraged.

    The reason seems to be nothing more than the fact that the healthier hormone product costs more to make.

    They will be forcing women to choose between no hormone replacement therapy (and for those who don’t hear about it in time to taper off, that means a crash “into the brick wall at 60 mph” instant menopause) or Premarin. The name is a giveaway - it’s made from the urine of pregnant mares, hence Pre(gnant) Mar(e)(Ur)in(e).

    This is a total whoring out of what is supposed to be a consumer protection agency to the companies it’s supposed to regulate, and down the road a lot of American women are going to get sick, and some will die, as a result.

    Yup, it’s pretty grim. And the “media” has been awfully silent about this. I wouldn’t have known about it if I weren’t on Downsize DC’s mailing list.
